DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Show: 1975 in pro wrestling


Today on our Longform History of Pro Wrestling series, Karl Stern wraps up 1974 on the first half of the show with audio of Mario Galento going on a Memphis area sports radio show and basically breaking kayfabe and shooting on Memphis wrestling and being blackballed. Insane audio.

We then begin 1975, including the first of two plane crashes that year with Bobby Shane, Gary Hart, Austin Idol, and Buddy Wolf. Karl also discusses the death of one of the most popular wrestlers ever, Jim Londos.
